Photographer's Note

Pedestrian crossing the Passerelle Solférino brige, River Seine, Paris. The Passerelle Solférino brige connects the Louvre on the right bank with the Musee D'Orsay on the left bank.

This is the third bridge across the Seine in this location. The first, inaugerated by Alenxander III lasted 100 years before being weakened by vehicular traffic. In 1961 a temporary steel bridge was errected, which in turn was demolished in 1992 allowing this new footbridge to be errected. The bridge is of interesting design with a cantilevered lower deck rising up from the quai on the north bank to join the upper deck which links the upper level of both banks of the Seine.
